    money

    Tom goes to the bank, he wants the cashier to have his cash withdrawal both in coins and banknotes.

    ''Can I have the cash both in coins and banknotes, please.''

    1. Is the writing OK?
    2. Is cashier the right name to name ones who are sitting at the bank counter to serve customer?
    3. For the money not in coins, is banknote the only name to describe the money in paper?

    Re: money

    1. The writing is OK. It's not entirely clear, however, how you expect the money. If you want $10 in quarters, three $20 bills and five $5 bills, you need to specify.

    2. In AmE we call a person working behind the counter in a bank a "teller."

    3. "Bills" or simply "paper money" would be common. Like I used "$20 bills" above.

    Re: money

    Tom goes to the bank to make a cash withdrawal. He asks the cashier to give him the money in a mixture of notes and coins.

    BrE - notes.
    AmE - bills
